  1. I have supported my furled main and mizzen with a holder about the same as yours mounted in the main and mizzen tubes. Since 2007 I have had no sail damage since 2007, however I put a piece of carpet in the curved section slightly wider than the board thickness. Also, I always tied the sails tightly to the deck so they have very little movement if any. Whenever the boat is home I release the hold down line pressure. You might try that. It has worked for me.
  2. Alan, Thank you so much for your recap. I enjoyed it thoroughly. dale Lively CS 17
  3. Alan, Not sure what this means, but here is copy of screen I got when I tried to go to sailboats and clicked on 17'. I always use Firefox.

  12. When rolling the sail on the mast and using it as a way to reef, how do you plan to keep the sail from unrolling? I don't remember if it was specified on the plans or not but I am pretty certain that I kept the same angle on the third mast hole. I have a feeling that whoever built your boat made the same mistake on the third position as on the main mast.
  13. I have a center mast step on my CS 17 Lively. I have only used it once and that was just a test to see how well it worked. It worked fine but almost immediately decided that I would prefer to have a good slab reefing system using the normal sail plan. My sails were sleeved at that time. I had them resewn for a sail track and slab reefing. Basically, I do some beach cruising so want to be able to handle highly variable wind conditions. Pulling out a mast and moving it to a new position in my opinion is not an option when the wind is blowing 15+ mph. I am speaking about the CS 17, it may be
